The God of Today, Annie Dillard
How to embrace the sufficiency of time, the fullness of the day? Annie Dillard’s “god of today” seems timeless, rooted in place and in no place at all…and so present everywhere. Bathed in the energy of motion that is so quick she is already there, the god of today is flashing and arcing around the earth toward night. What is the secret? What is the moment of perception, of awareness? What triggers the appearance of the god of today? Where does the god of today appear for you, today?
